Three Hong Kong and Macau activists who planned to lodge a protest with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Beijing over a string of uninhabited islets in the East China Sea that are the crux of territorial disputes between China, Taiwan and Japan were barred from entering the Chinese capital, a group member said.

Chan Miu-tak, former head of the Action Committee for Defending the Diaoyu Islands, whose members landed on one of the Japan-controlled Senkaku islets in 2012 to declare Chinese sovereignty, and two other group members were sent back on a plane for Hong Kong after they landed in Beijing, group member Tsang Kin-shing said.
